I actually succeeded in getting Wi-Fi to work in Ubuntu
with my troublesome chipset, a Broadcom BCM4318. I installed
b43-fwcutter using apt-get and it said "This package requires firmware
files that cannot legally be shipped with this system. Would you like
to download them?" I said yes in the ncurses-based application and my
Wi-Fi worked.
Hope this helps others with the same chipset.
